Q. How much is it in digit numbers?
A: That is a really bad number, and would not be the right way to say it. One thousand is 1,000. Fourteen hundred is a slang way of saying one thousand four hundred, and is written 1,400. Hundred thousand is 100,000. Fourteen hundred thousand (never said this way) could maybe be written 1,400,000 but that is actually one million four hundred thousand.

So.... I don't know which number you mean.
